By occupation I am (mostly) a web application developer. My platform of choice is Linux running Apache, MySQL, and PHP. (In truth, I really prefer PostgreSQL but at work I get MySQL.) Anyway, PHP version 5 has recently been released, and it looks like it's a big step forward.
Unfortunately my server at home is out of commission thanks to a bad hard drive (the warranty replacement came today actually and is sitting beside me). Then, at work, rather business critical applications are running on both the web servers I am in charge of, and I can't just go upgrading to this new very different version of PHP, so I am totally itching to try it out. Even more so after I read an article titled Why PHP 5 Rocks! I can't wait to try it out!
